Lucifer’s fifth season is coming along great and the most recent update states newer episodes are going to be added to the final few. Lucifans are about to receive a longer season than they were first promised. The series has now expanded to include a total of 16 episodes, which means six additional hours of Lucifer! Don’t we love the sound of that?
This news has finally put a lot of fans to rest because now they can anticipate more thrill, considering these are going to be the show’s final bunch of episodes. After all, who wants a bad summing up of the plots or distorted character arcs? That was the primary reason Lucifans were battling for the sixth season but now that the show makers have promised the six extra episodes, we can all look forward to a more appetizing finale.
This is yet another reason for us to be thankful to Netflix. Let’s not forget it was this streaming giant that rescued Lucifer when Fox, its original network, canceled it after the third season. Who could imagine Fox was about to let Lucifer end without a proper conclusion just when the fun was getting started! Thanks to Netflix now that the story has grown and all the characters are being given their well-deserved ending.
Amidst all the hullabaloo, Lucifer also proved what a strong fan base it has developed in a short span of time. In case you missed it, the series became the most-watched show on Netflix, holding onto its well-earned top spot for eight consecutive weeks.
Season 5 of Lucifer is currently in production. It has confirmed the return of the main cast, which includes Lauren German, Tom Ellis, Lesley Ann Brandt, D.B. Woodside, Kevin Alejandro, Rachel Harris and Aimee Garcia. We are yet to find out if Inbar Lavi will make her comeback as Eve.
It’s not entirely clear how these extra six episodes will affect the release date of the show though. There’s plenty of time to write the season as well as film the episodes before next spring, which is when we are expecting the season to release. We believe a 16-episode season will be the longest ever on Netflix if we consider hour-long shows only. There are also chances that they might break up the season in two parts. Let’s wait and see!
